In closing . . . .

Hello again. I've just returned from a week at the New Jersey shore. When I found out Jim was to return the day I was leaving, I was extremely disappointed I would not be there as he got off the plane. What came to be, was a tremendous sense of calm knowing he was home and back amongst friends and family. Many thanks to those of you who showed up at the airport to welcome him home.

Last night I had the chance to get together with Jim, Todd and Amy Dietzel. After dinner, Jim checked his e-mails and read through the comments posted on this blog. I don't know if Jim will ever know the impact he has made on so many of us - some who know him and some who just know "of him".

I ask myself, if not for Jim, would I be thinking of the many men and women serving and sacrificing their lives for this country? When the media covers more on the split between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt or the trial of Michael Jackson . . . it trivializes what these men and women are doing. Although Jim is home, what we cannot forget those still serving. These "people" are the reason we sit and enjoy a lunch, go to the movies, spend a relaxing vacation away. They are serving our country in a way most will never have to. Our freedoms have come at a heavy cost throughout history. Agree with the war or not - these men and women have seen and lived through moments that will forever change them. For this, I am eternally grateful.

With Jim home and direct communication open (alunniusnr@hotmail.com) , I feel it's time to wind down this blog. If there is some kind of "community celebration" planned, I will be sure to post it. You may want to check back occasionally for that, otherwise I will close simply by saying thank you. Thank you all for your kindness, words of encouragement and prayers. Take care and Semper Fidelis.

Cynthia, again THANK YOU for the blog and all the updates to keep us all informed. Without it, I hate to say it but, the majority of us would have been in the dark the entire time, with only scarce glimpses of light every now and then. Thanks again Cynthia.

Jim you are on your quick road to recovery and doing it very well. Thanks again for all your service.


Ray and Janelle

My name is Katrina Graham. I am the mother of Sgt James Graham, the marine that was killed when your marine was hurt. I've tried for 2 months to find all of the Marines that were with J before he died. I had found Lance Cpl Turner and now Corpsman Aluni. I would very much like to talk with Jim if at all possible. I am so glad he is alive and improving.
